I would like to thank...

Charlie will be 2 weeks old tomorrow! Besides all the help from friends and family with dinners and taking care of the girls, there are a few other things that have helped me get through these long days and nights- I have to give a special thanks to the following:
Lanolin. I would not still be nursing without it!
Pampers Swaddlers. Boys are different than girls. I have always been a Huggies mom. Pampers smell weird, and I don't like the way they feel. BUT, everytime Charlie peed, he soaked his back. Seriously, EVERY time! I don't know how he did it. I filled his laundry basket in 2 days. We switched to Pampers and no more leaks.And finally, a special thanks to good middle of the night TV shows! I don't recommend Food Network late at night as it usually makes me very hungry, but this show, Ace of Cakes is awesome! It's just about this bakery, Charm City Cakes, that makes the most beautiful, amazing cakes! Pastry Chef Duff Goldman and his crew are entertaining and crazy talented. Check out their cake gallery HERE. Very fun to watch, and it doesn't make me hungry.

oh katie, he is so adorable. i love when their feet scrunch up and they are like a little ball when you hold them. i also don't like how pampers feel and besides oscar peeing all over me and his own face many times before i mastered changing a boy, huggies still work for us. that's so odd that his back got all wet. and i too would not have made it without the lanolin. glad there's fun tv shows on late for you...too bad we don't have cable. congrats again!

i had so many similar boy diaper changing problems. girl diaper changes are way better i have found! and don't you think pampers, lanolin, and all those other new mother products should buy overnight commercials?

Congrats on the new boy! How fun! and boys are way differant than girls for sure! Todd peed out everything! He's a handsome one!

Chris and I BOTH use Lanolin...on our lips! best chapstick ever! Every night it goes on and we wake up with soft lucious lips! I'm a Pampers girl. But my boys have still peed up the side at night. Glad it's working for you!

It's so true about the Pampers. I love them. It's funny you dont like how they feel though. That's my favorite part. They feel like cloth, like cotton, like clouds... :) The Huggies make baby bums all red, besides leaking all over the place.

Jace is a week old today. I've got my sights set on the 6 week mark when things (hopefully) settle down and get a little more predictable. Maybe you and I should have a "sleep"over with our newborns. At least we'd have someone to talk to in the middle of the night!
